We loved our stay here. It was quiet and that's what we wanted. We were not disturbed by cockerels or trains despite their proximity possibly because we slept so well. The owner was really friendly but left us alone which was also good. We really enjoyed the pool hot tub and sauna. The bathroom and kitchen facilities were excellent. We will definitely be re-booking. Ideal for a quiet retreat or for those with a young family. Perfect for exploring the Forest of Dean.
Nothing it was great.
Lovely place! Great warm welcome. Lovely swimming pool and hot tub! Will be booking again.
Nothing - for the price it is beyond excellent value for money!
Bedrooms comfortable, lounge area relaxing, kitchen well-equipped for own cooking. Well-designed, the wooden staircase leads up from the kitchen/lounge but takes up minimal living space. Bathroom/shower/lavatory good. Plenty of towels. The huge plus is your use of the adjoining leisure facility (just though an inside door) where there is a warm swimming pool of approx 12 metres, 1.2 metres depth and an easy to remove and replace electrically-worked cover. Our boys loved playing volleyball over the net in the pool. In a separate adjacent room is a lovely 6-person spa bath with good variable controls, and in another room, a small but effective sauna. We slept well, some people comment here about a) passing trains which are fairly close, and b) a cockerel which crows in the morning. Neither made any real difference to our quality of sleep. I also read some reviews criticising the slightly unkempt nature of the back yard, but a few kids toys, a part tumbledown shed and a netted trampoline, plus 3 small chicken houses, were of no consequence to us. We loved the residence we hired. Parking right outside your entrance door, and a covered well-sheltered semi-outside area with barbecue, table and 4 chairs which should be great in good weather. Wi-fi (other than a short blip outage which was soon fixed) is excellent throughout. Heating good. The owners are adjacent: they are friendly and helpful people whom we felt would do anything to make you happy and comfortable. Hint:- take dressing gown and flip-flops for moving between accommodation and the pool/leisure area. It was hard not to tread a bit of wet back through. Steve Riches, Northampton, UK.
Nitpicking really - but bathroom/lavatory needs a stronger extractor fan. You also really need some way of drying you towels and swimwear easily after a session in the pool/spa/sauna. I only gave a "fair" to location because it is a bit "in the middle of nowhere" BUT if you intend a lazy time in the leisure area that is of no consequence. Gloucester, Stroud, Forest of Dean and Cheltenham all in 20 mins driving. We have every intention of going back when we are able. Loved it!
Perfect location Lovely people Relaxed atmosphere Clean and comfortable
Courtyard could have been a bit neater but we wasn't that worried about it we just loved it there
The cottage was very comfortable, clean and had everything you would need for a great break away. The children loved the pool and we wished we had longer than a couple of days stay. The Forest of Dean is so close with so many fantastic days out. A beautiful area.
The cottage just needs areas of decoration and refurbishment finishing off ready for the new season. And outside of the cottage could do with a good tidy up for 'first impressions' as you drive in.
Great to have the use of the pool and Jacuzzi. A home-from-home feel. Very welcoming staff. Well equipped kitchen. Beds were so comfortable. Loads of towels provided (inc. pool towels). Write up says there was a DVD player – there was not although when we asked, one was provided straight away. Lovely location – very peaceful.
A hairdryer and bins in the bedrooms would be a nice touch. Provide instructions how to use the sauna. The outdoor area – it was such a shame it did not look more cared for. Perhaps a gate separating the main house’s garden and Coach House Barn area would be an idea?
People are friendly,offered us 4 fresh eggs on the 1st day (there are 4 of us) not professionally managed- it felt like you're staying in someone's house. If you're looking for a professionally ran B&B type, this one is not it. It worked for me, as the owner was friendly and helpful. Gave me their own hair dryer after being asked. swimming pool and jacuzzi/ sauna available, good for relaxing after a long day of walking Plenty of towel provided has a fully functional kitchen. outdoor bbq facility available, we enjoyed a lovely night outside. plenty of towels provided
beddings didn't look fresh for the 1st night. but changed on the 2nd night after we mentioned it. bin was half full when we got there, and was never emptied. the kitchen could do with some basic seasoning/ sauce other than just oil and salt. there's no where to go and eat near by, so we cooked ourselves. we did BBQ one night, had to buy sauces/ herbs etc ourselves, which wasn't too convenient. some shampoo/ shower gel will be lovely. luckily we brought our own ones.
Loved the pool and lovely owners
Train line alongside property and cockerel cockadoodling commencing at 4.30am!
The owners of the barn went out of their way to help even to the degree of taking us to and from the local pub so we could celebrate my birthday and not have to worry about drinking and driving. The place was clean and tidy and well looked after!
The chemicals in the jacuzzi were over powering, the body jets in the shower did not work as did the mirror lights in the bathroom which made shaving a little difficult. Could also benefit from a grassed area to sunbathe on!
Very good value indeed. Virtually a whole house for 125 sterling a night, with heated pool, spa and sauna. The owner is extremely helpful and a really good sort with it. Overall incredibly homely and relaxing.
The location is essentially in the middle of a rural area and not in a village, and the house is adjacent to a well used railway line. This means windows facing the track have to be kept closed at night. The property in which this house sits could do with a tidy up- it would help make a better impression on arrival as it looks a bit scruffy and messy at the moment. Finally, the double bed is just a standard double which is a bit too small for me.
Liked the pool, hot tub and sauna facilities - such a bonus with an active 13 yr old in tow. Good for the adults to unwind too. TV and wifi scored highly (last minute laptop work whilst watching football). General ambience and well equipped kitchen gave the cottage a home from home feeling, so evening meal was no problem. Excellent and will definitely stay again over night as we were made to feel so welcome.
Everything! Atractive location- beautiful countryside. Brilliant amenities- own heated pool, hot tub & sauna. Excellent host- free range eggs provided in the morning. Much appreciated.
Everything, can't fault this place, loads of extras, looked after well by the owners. Freshly laid hens eggs given to me.bottle of wine on arrival, comfortable,clean, relaxing, quiet venue( just what I wanted) every amenity to hand! Use of indoor pool, sauna, hot tub! Highly excellent
The accommodation was clean and comfortable, kitchen fully equipped and the pool, jacuzzi and sauna amazing! We left feeling very relaxed.
The garden area could be made so much more attractive. Although the decking area is lovely it would be nice to have a grassed area to sit on.
we very much enjoyed our stay, the accommodation as very comfortable and it was lovely to have the pool and facilities in the barn, all you had to do is go through a door. We will so be back! The owners were also very friendly and helpful
It would be great to have TV's in the bedrooms
We enjoyed our stay at the Coach House Barn. We were made to feel welcome and we'll definitely be booking again.
The Coach House Barn is an fantastic little holiday cottage. The cottage itself is a newly converted coach house that has been done to a great standard. The accommodation was very clean and comfortable and the pool and hot tub facilities excellent. The owner was very friendly, and as this is a new venture, is very accommodating and open to feedback. The children enjoyed looking at the chickens in the yard. I would highly recommend this cottage for a small family or couple. We would definitely stay here again.
Could do with a heated towel rail to dry things on after using the pool.
Had a wonderful 1 night stay at the coach house barn, wish we could have stayed longer the swimming pool, hot tub and sauna were amazing, beautiful little place so glad we found it, will definitely have many more weekends away there, loved it.
The 'view' from the terrace is clutter, junk and scattered hen houses. Could be much better if tidied up and could see the countryside.
